I am Séphora, your pathfinder in Martinique.
I personally did the photo shooting and wrote the description below. The main assets of this holiday rental are:
Direct access to the beach and sea from the terrace
Kayaks and paddleboards at your disposal
5 star rated by the martinican tourist board
Where is this waterfront 5-star holiday rental located?
La maison dans la mer " the house of the sea" is a unique and charming villa that has been fully renovated and is situated at the entrance of Saint-Pierre, a village on the North Caribbean coast of Martinique. 5 star rated by the martinican tourist board (since december 2023) this historic house dates back to the early nineteenth century (or even earlier!), and has beautiful exposed stone walls. Thanks to its solid structure and thick walls, it survived the eruption of 1902 that destroyed most of the town. It is also the only house in Saint-Pierre that has a terrace that overlooks the beach and is literally close to the sea.
You can enjoy the breathtaking views and the soothing sound of the waves from this cozy and elegant villa.
With its 5 bedrooms, this holiday home is the perfect place for a holiday with family or friends in Martinique. You can access the sea directly from the spacious terrace and enjoy the warm water within 20m! This is a rare luxury for a holiday in Martinique! This house by the sea offers you a blend of comfort and authenticity. Its convenient location lets you experience the charm of the seaside while having the benefits of a “city” location. Everything you need is within 10 minutes on foot (a supermarket, a bakery, a bank, a pharmacy, etc.) .
How is the “House in the Sea” arranged?
The house was completely renovated in August 2023, keeping only the original external walls of exposed stone. The floor tiles, the framework and the roof were all replaced. The building was soundproofed by triple glazing. The electricity and plumbing were updated as well as all the modern comforts (the kitchen, air conditioning).
Historic building lovers will admire the attention given to the aesthetics of this holiday rental, such as the sanitary ware with “retro” taps, the tiles, the furniture and the decorative accessories. The parquet floor of the upstairs bedroom, from the nineteenth century, was restored by skilled craftsmen.
The "House in the Sea" has two levels. On the ground floor, there are 4 lovely air-conditioned bedrooms, 3 double bedrooms with king-sized beds (180 cm) and a children’s bedroom with 2 bunk beds. An air-conditioned lounge area with a comfortable sofa bed can also accommodate an additional person (extra charge).Upstairs, there is a splendid master suite with an amazing view of the sea.
On the seafront, the stunning living space of the house lets you fully appreciate the sea view. The fitted kitchen is next to the covered terrace. The terrace has several cozy spaces for a group stay: a large dining table, a lounge area, etc.
The villa is designed to be a cozy and comfortable place for families with children. It has many amenities that make it kid friendly, such as a cot, a high chair, and a large washing machine that can handle up to 10 kilos of laundry. It also has a dryer, so you don’t have to worry about wet clothes or towels. The villa is a perfect choice for a relaxing and fun-filled holiday with your loved ones.
What to do near the House in the Sea?
The beach in front of the house is quiet and peaceful, as most bathers go to Turin Cove, 1 km away. You will not be bothered by passers-by and other beach-goers, who are only local residents.
30m to the left of the house, on the beach, there is a fisherman’s shelter that offers an authentic tourist experience! You can watch some typical scenes: the departure and arrival of gum trees and the landing of fish, sold on a simple stall behind the shelter. You can easily buy fresh fish for your barbecues from here!
You can also join the fishermen when they throw the seine (a net to catch fish), and participate in the ceremony of raising the stage (lifting the net from the water), a moment of true authenticity.
To make the most of your seaside experience, a two-seater kayak and a paddle board (with life jackets) are available free of charge. You can also discover the natural beauty of the seabed of Northern Martinique by treating yourself to a diving session in one of the many clubs in the town.
Staying in Saint-Pierre is also an opportunity to discover the history of this former economic and cultural capital of the West Indies (before the eruption of Mount Pelée in 1962). Many open-air remains can be visited on foot or via a small train ride. We recommend that you complete your stroll through the city with a visit to the Frank A. Perret Museum, a memorial to the 1902 disaster.
By opting for a stay in the north of Martinique, you will be able to discover many points of interest. The north of the island has several excellent distilleries (Depaz on the heights of Saint-Pierre, JM in Macabou, Neisson at the entrance to Carbet). You can also indulge in hiking: Prêcheur-Grand Rivière, the ascent of Mount Pelée, the gorges of the Falaise. Finally, do not forget to include a visit to the Zoo du Carbet in your program,and potentially combine it with the gardens of Balata towards Fort-de-France.
The House in the Sea is certainly the starting point for a superb family holiday in Northern Martinique!

The house was perfect for all of us including our 2 young grandchildren. Excellent kitchen facilities and BBQ for big family dinners. Amazing views of the sailboats and Mount Pelee and incredible sunsets every evening. The location is very peaceful and we enjoyed the beach every day. Definitely exceeded our expectations! Big shout out to Sophia who was most attentive and very welcoming. On our first day our car rental did not go well as they provided a manual transmission vehicle and the children’s safety seats had to be reinstalled in the replacement vehicle. All this very much delayed us and Sophia patiently waited for us and provided quick options for us to get a small grocery shop before the shops closed. She kept in touch to see if we were settled and needed anything during our stay. Thanks so much for such an enjoyable family destinationWe enjoyed Martinique and will definitely return!

What a lovely comment, thanks a lot Mary Lynn, we will make sure to share the comment with the owners and Sophia!
We fell in love with this place! We are a group of adults who travel together every winter for a vacation. We found this place in St Pierre and had a fantastic two-week stay. The home is even more beautiful than the photos. The location is perfect- at the end of a lovely beach, with a view of the harbor, the mountain, and the city. We love to cook and this kitchen was perfect. Large, well stocked, and with a window looking directly to the sea. The bedrooms are large, well airconditioned and quiet. The dining room/lounge is beautifully designed and comfortable. We spent many hours eating, talking, doing puzzles, and playing cards there. St Pierre is a terrific city for a first visit to Martinique. It combines history, beach, and small-town character. We went to the market nearly daily for delicious tropical fruits and local vegetables.

Nous avons adoré notre séjour à la Maison dans la mer. Chaque détail de cette maison a été pensé pour rendre le séjour agréable et magique. De l'agencement des pièces à l'éclairage et aux électro-ménagers, en passant bien évidemment par la spectaculaire «pièce à vivre» / terrasse / salle à manger, tout a contribué à faire de ce séjour un moment unique pour notre famille. Nous avons aussi adoré la ville de Saint-Pierre, si authentique et accueillante.

Merci beaucoup David pour ce très bel avis sur la maison dans la mer ! Au plaisir de vous recevoir à nouveau dans cette superbe villa pieds dans l'eau !
Sophia notre hôte nous a offert un accueil chaleureux, ainsi que sa disponibilité pour toutes nos questions. La villa est à l’image des photos, suréquipée on ne manquait de rien, un cadre idyllique pour passer de merveilleuses vacances en famille. Le point fort : une literie à tomber par terre avec le bruit de la mer pour s’endormir. Merci villaveo

Quel plaisir de vous lire Elisabeth ! Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez passé un beau séjour à la villa dans la mer ! Au plaisir de vous recevoir à nouveau !
Mon séjour avec ma famille fut paradisiaque dans cette majestueuse et très belle villa véritablement les pieds dans l’eau, avec accès direct la plage à seulement quelques mètres. La vue à la fois sur la rade de Saint Pierre et la Montagne Pelée. C’est tout simplement magique . Imaginez un peu les couchers de soleil depuis votre immense terrasse…c’est féerique. Sans oublier la qualité architecturale qui mélange à la fois les murs en pierre ancestraux et la modernité. I l faut le voir pour le croire. A recommander sans modération. Je reviendrai assurément l'année prochaine.
